In words, explain how the crossover rate is computed and why the net present value profile is useful. The crossover rate is the internal rate of return applied to the differences between the cash flows of two mutually exclusive investments. The net present value profile identifies which one of the mutually exclusive projects should be accepted at a stated rate. One project is acceptable at rates above the crossover rate while the opposite project is acceptable at rates lower than the crossover rate. At the crossover rate, you are indifferent to the projects.Feedback: Refer to section 8.4.AACSB: Reflective thinkingBloom's: ComprehensionDifficulty: IntermediateLearning Objective: 08-03 Explain the internal rate of return criterion and its associated strengths and weaknesses.Section: 8.4Topic: Net present value profile8-66
